In the latest twist to the Terrell Owens drama after being released Tuesday by the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, TMZ.com reports that a source close to Owens is demanding a public apology by team owner Jon Frankel as well as payment for games played that he has not been paid for. The source told TMZ that Owens is owed four game checks worth more that 160,000. Owens also claims that he is still owed 50 percent of all revenue off of concessions, merchandise and tickets from during his tenure. Owens is considering a lawsuit against the Wranglers because of information that was included in a press release announcing his release. "The proverbial straw that broke the camel's back for Mr. Owens was his no-show to a scheduled appearance at a local children's hospital with other Wrangler players and coaches," Wranglers owner Jon Frankel said in the statement. When specifically asked for his side of the story, Owens responded: "That don't work no more." According to TMZ, an unnamed Wranglers coach said Owens was released because the team was going broke, not because he missed a recent team trip to a children's hospital. The coach added that Owens played in three games after the hospital visit in early May. Owens, 38, played for the Cowboys from 2006-2008, catching 38 touchdowns in 47 games. The six-time Pro Bowler signed with the Wranglers in January and became a part owner with hopes of getting another opportunity to play in the NFL.
